Default [Leaf Chuunin] Sanada Ema

Chuunin of Konohagakure
Sanada Ema
"You're not the only one who wants to be a hero, you know."

[Image]

Loaded the bullets with my blood in the rounds.
Yeah she's a sweet six shooter,
She knows how to get down.
Until the kick-back,
When my heart hits the ground.
She said,
"You think you're so tough,
Baby, put your hands up.
"


[Name] Sanada Ema
[Age] Seventeen
[Sex] Female
[Height] 5'8''

[Country/Village] Hi no Kuni / Konohagakure no Sato [Information]
[Rank] Chuunin
[Division] Seishou (Support Fighter)

[Physical Description]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, she’s heard it all before. Big brown eyes, soft pale face, never seen a girl as pretty as her in a shithole like this. Not really interested, bro. Despite her height making her stand out in a crowd and her biologically perfect body not holding an extra ounce of fat unless she really tries, she’s done her best not to stand out - - hastily self-cut hair, a complete lack of cosmetics, and a sullen expression are her trifecta of fuck off, please. She does her best to look uninterested and shrinks her body down as much as possible with a lazy stance, but the curse of her perfect physique means she’s normally smack-dab center in the middle of attention. Her particular fondness for pharmaceutical solutions to anxiety can leave her with a particular earthy smell, and leaves the impression she's not wholly involved in this conversation. If she cares about anything with her physical appearance - - it's her flat chest. The other Sanada girls sure figured it out, why can't she?

[Clothing]

Her grunge aesthetic is a little too carefully sourced to be the result of just wearing whatever she had laying on the floor that morning, but the baggy t-shirts emblazoned with a band you’ve never heard of or a brand of alcohol or cigarattes she’s probably too young to be repping (I did an escort mission for their cargo, al’right?) help distract from her flat chest, and all her jeans seem too new and fresh to have the tasteful cuts and gashes revealing her pale skin underneath. She’s fond of combat boots and large hooded jackets to complete the step-off look. She accessorizes with half-forgotten hair ties, since her long-hair tends to get cut off whenever she starts to draw too much attention to a short shoulder length mess. When training, she’s fond of the casual gymwear look, bold white lines breaking up black windbreakers and track pants.

For combat missions, she wears a standard blue-black Konohagakure shinobi uniform, with a chuunin vest she’s maybe a bit too proud of - - but not too proud not to decorate with pins and stickers. Her headband has a red band, marking her a member of Seishou. Casually or on a mission, she wears the six-coin motif of the Sanada clan (rokumon-sen), which represents a zen state of willing to die in battle, if that time comes.

When she’s doing shinobi work that doesn’t involve the Konoha uniform, she opts for a deep blue hakama with the rokumon-sen proudly displayed on the back, worn over her standard casual kit. Apparently her cousin Shinji had one made for a samurai training Sanshiro, and when her eyes lit up at the design, he had one made for her, as well. It’s one of her most treasured positions, and helped a long way in learning to respect Sanshiro despite his...problems.

She has a collection of sunglasses, but she’s most notable for her teashade sunglasses, even if most people say they make her look like an old man.

[Personality]

“She go hard.”

And go hard she do. A combination of martial arts training, the Sanada ability of Taisha, and a simple voracious personality, Ema is always biting off as much as she can chew - - being surprised that she could take it all - - and going for a second bite. She’s mastered the art of subtlety to a fault, tirelessly working behind the scenes as much as possible as not to stand out. Do you wanna be a jounin someday? Being a chuunin is fine enough. Should we send a member of the Sanada clan to handle this? Let Sanshiro-chan handle it. Wow! You really completed this many missions in one week? I’m just trying to get paid, man.

She has an impressive ability to always get just enough answers correct on a written exam to pass, but not excel. She doesn’t mind letting other members of her team handle a mission while she lingers in the shadows. Anything is better than the disgusted looks she gets when she goes all out. If she gets anxious, she pulls up her hood and readjusts her sunglasses to hide her face. She smokes like a broken stove. She mutters and frets to herself, and chews all her fingernails down to the wick - - and when they grow back by virtue of her Celestial Body, she does it again.

But the reality is that she’s a passionate soul who’s desperate to be given a chance to really shine. If Sanshiro can make a fool of himself, become a “dangerous person”, but still have so many friends and have so much respect on the village, maybe all the thoughts that her family should stick to the shadows and not make a stir some old-fashioned nonsense? But with her older parents and her place in the family, she feels obligated to hold true to old-fashioned traditions.

[Nindo; "Way of the Ninja"] "Don't stand out too much."

[Clan/Bloodline] Sanada / Celestial Body

Combo Archetype: Sanada Desperado [Information]
Special: Once per thread, the Desperado can completely ignore all rules of damage for a single post by virtue of an innate response from their Celestial Body. This can mean completely ignoring a point blank hit thanks to rapid regeneration, or going hard in the paint and ignoring grievous, crippling injuries to move and strike as normal by a hasty patch-work repair (as with the Daredevil archetype special), and so on. By expending a Kawarimi Usage (and a Stage 1 Jutsu usage), the Desperado can repeat this feat up to two more times.

A small mechanical device strapped to her arm, Ema can suddenly launch a series of six fire-coated needles by yanking back a string that activates a simple air-pressure canister. While not as accurate as manually throwing them, it makes up for it with the sudden surprise and flourish. It must be manually reloaded to use more than once, although each needle could be fired independently.

Biography:

Ema’s parents were a bit older than average when they had her, putting her in the same rung of the family as the Sons of Seijin - - although Seijin was her uncle. Due to the turmoil related to the settling in Konoha and the like, her parents mostly drilled that old-fashioned Sanada traditionalism into her. Hide the bloodline and stay subtle. Despite this, Ema had dreams of one day being a big-time hot shot ninja hero, and the idea of being born to a village that could afford her that glorious dream was just way too exciting. Of course, when it finally came time for her to enter the academy, her parents had very specific and stringent rules for her to follow. She couldn’t freak the other kids out - - and certainly not her instructors - - by clawing up or anything like that, so she had to keep things on the down low. A ninja hero without a trademark move - - her secret cat’s claws! Ema was crushed, but the family’s needs outweighed her own. She ended up internalizing this hard, imagining sacrificing her dreams of heroics in exchange for an easier life for her family to be a true act of courage.

So, as she aged in the academy, she developed a bit of a morose personality. Sullen. While her instructors noticed her unique ability to always get the same exact percentage on her testing materials, and that she never seemed to tire out during PT or other exercises, and so on, they had entire classes of big personalities to manage. She wouldn’t be the first girl to go through the schooling system of Konoha with some reason or an other to not stand out, and she wouldn’t be the last. She found it difficult to match subtlety with friendship, so she learned to push people away to make it easier on her - - and since she wasn’t expected to excel in the academy by her parents, she spent most of her free time reading and writing and drawing and expressing herself that way. Whenever someone would catch her, and offer any type of compliment - - well, it almost felt like a rude joke. It became easier and easier, as time went on to focus on staying out of people’s way and just moving on.

As a genin, she was placed a team with a pair of excited showoffs. Maybe someone out there thought it would break her out of her shell, or maybe it was to make up for her lazy performance, but all it really did was make her feel more and more isolated as time went on. She would find a way to shunt off any of her own accomplishments onto her team so she wouldn’t draw undue attention to herself, but time and time again she was seen for what she really was by her team - - a hard worker being held back by her own doubts. They helped her climb a bit out of her shell, and as she started to trust them more, she eventually revealed some of the secrets of her bloodline to them. They were grossed out at first, but considering one of the girls looked like she was blind and could tell you your exact measurements just looking at you, she didn’t stand out too much against that backdrop. Armed with this friendship and acceptance, when she was sure she could get away with it, she let herself rock loose a bit. There was plenty about her bloodline she could hide as dumb luck or taijutsu training, after all. Her art became a bit more beautiful, a bit more expressive during this time - - and one particular late night graffiti session of a Hyuuga and Sanada girl holding hands garnered a bit of positive reception around town, before it was painted over. Her team wasn’t quite ready for the chuunin exams the first time it came around for them to attempt - - the team wanted to make sure everyone got promoted at the same time, so they could stick together, after all - - so they piled into the audience to cheer for their siblings and cousins.

Sanshiro grew a fist out of his fist and punched a Nara boy, and somehow that meant Ema was under house arrest unless her team sensei came for her specifically for a mission. Couldn’t let her get to comforable with the Konoha kids and doing something dangerous like that. Because of this - - and her teams commitment to getting promoted together - - her team as a whole didn’t get promoted until a bit later on in their careers. But, they were happy to do it together. Since they were recent promos while the Snow Genocide Operation was in play, they mostly ran around the village handling paperwork and committing themselves to standard missions around the local region. It was a show of force, to make sure that no one would think too many of Konoha’s shinobi were out out of the village at any given time. It was a lot of hard work, but because she was constantly being called out, eventually her parents forgot about her curfew.

When the beastmen attacked, Ema was sure she’d lose her team and her friends and whatever little goodwill she had managed - - but that “dangerous” Sanshiro was at the forefront of several battles helping defend the village while she ran supplies back and forth and did her best not to stand out to anyone - - not that it helped, because after the Invasion, the already sour opinion people might have been harboring for the aliens in their village just came right out to the forefront. With only a handful of Sanada in the village, even if she was hiding under her hood and behind her sunglasses, people tended to suss her out and give her a hard time. Even with her Hyuuga friend backing her up, it didn’t seem to matter much to anyone.

Currently, Ema’s got a bit of experience under her hood. She’s pretty good at what she does - - and she’s got a streak of that forgotten desire to be a hero playing around in her heart. But she’s pissed at people like Sanshiro for his loud mouth, that stunt at the Chuunin exams, and the way he seems to get to do whatever he wants with his bloodline and still make friends. She’s pissed at her parents for being so old-fashioned she can’t choose the life she wants for herself. She’s pissed at the Hokage being so weak-spined he needs three other guys just make his job function. She’s pissed at herself for not growing much of a spine herself.

But one day, maybe, she could match herself against those old dreams.

You've applied two separate times and have wanted a Sanada for as long as I can remember--those factors alone are enough to warrant approval, you're one of the strongest writers on the site with some of the most creative visions. But I think what I like about Ema has been seeing her aesthetic develop as you've worked on her. She seems real and layered and tied to the clan in such a way that I have to give props--mentioning Sanshiro in the biography a few times was also good in terms of flattering me.

There's gimmick and schtick here--but I work with those two ingredients in spades with my Sanada. There's a lot of heart in here and it's all packaged extremely tightly with little fat. She's different than Saho, a character that I thought was worthy of approval both times I looked at her but missed the boat due to circumstance and limited slots. You've always remained interested in the clan and someone whom I to this day bounce ideas off. That warrants approval on it's own as well.

It's been 4 years, 11 months and 2 days since you first applied with Saho.

Welcome to the family with Ema.

Sanada GM Half Approval

I'll let the numbers people look at the numbers, but it seems to check out as I see it!

Was missing 2 pool points, put them into Control, took the two AP that I had in control and moved one to Tactics (I needed one more to qualify for a jutsu, whoops), and put the other one back in my AP bank. Updated the bottom of the sheet to reflect those changes, as well.

Fixed the typos Merdle pointed out while I was it.

Sheesh, which means I still missed something. I tried to check the jutsu requirements too, oops.
